What to Consider When Choosing an Electric S’mores Maker

Get all the campfire cheer, minus the hassle of smoke and stacking logs.

While we all love a good campfire treat, we don’t always have the time or space to chop firewood, build up a blaze and settle down to toast marshmallow treats over the flames. But the option of whipping up a classic s’more indoors, in a jiffy, is a winner. An electric s’mores maker uses a safe, heated electric coil to toast marshmallows to golden perfection. And their integrated trays designed for graham crackers and chocolate bars keep everything together, and minimize cleanup. Everyone loves a s’more, and everyone will love such a quick, convenient and fun way to bring the outdoors inside. Consider these three things when you’re ready to buy.

S’mores makers often come with a specific number of roasting sticks. Smaller models designed for two people are easy to store and take up very little space. But a four-person model, with four marshmallow skewers and plenty of room for crackers and chocolate, will definitely be a party crowd pleaser (or work for bigger families).

Electric s’mores makers are an easy and safe way for kids to build and roast their own treats, no scary open flame in sight. Of course, parental supervision is still important—but protective screens on these devices keep little hands safe.

S’mores cookers aren’t just for the kitchen table. They’re great for a snack in front of a television and it’s easy to use an extension cord for a s’mores feast on the deck or lawn. They also make for an awesome addition to an easy backyard campout.
